Is this good for me? Asus G50Vm-x1

This laptop i have been thinking about for sometime and am considering getting it. My Budget was $1000 bucks and i am able to get it for that because i work for the company. Am a text book case of someone who dosent know a thing about Laptops, and need help to know what i want. I like this one for the graphics card because i do plan on doing some gaming, and web browsing for school. some ppl have told me get a better processor than graphics cards and others say better graphics card. Am not sure what i should go for. Am not a graphics designer, and the highest graphics game a play is GuildWars. i was wondering on what your input might be? And if there is something better out there for the money, if so what?
thank in advance for your advise

I would advise a desktop for gaming and notebook for school and web browsing. It is difficult to "squeeze" high graphic quality in a limited notebook space.

It's hard to go wrong with any notebook to be honest with you. That being said try to stick with well known name ds such as toshiba, dell, hp, etc. If you haven't heard of the brand it's best to stay away from it.

Do you need specific recommendations?

    I just finished looking that particular notebook you stated up, looks like a great selection. Asus is known for high quality and not cutting corners.

Asus x83v wont turn on at all

Try another AC outlet, Try another Cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs. If the AC jack has been damaged due to pulling on the AC cord, you may have to replace the AC jack. Most likely, there is no in-line fuse in a laptop.

Where can I get a N71JQ-X1 Motherboard

A new one would be around the same price as a complete laptop. You will probably have difficulty finding a new one, depending on how old the laptop is.

Used / second hand boards are risky because you don't know what you are getting until it's all rebuilt again.

Hi am trying to buy my first Laptop and know seems to be able to help me

Asus G50Vm-X1 is an excellent choice if you want a budget laptop powerful enough to play game at a not too high price. The 512 Mb cards will enable you to play recent games with efficient hardware acceleration.
If you want a pure gamer laptop, with top of the range CPU, you will need to start your budget from $1500 or so.
Do not buy laptops with two Gb RAM, they are slightly cheaper, but you will need to upgrade memory immediately if you want to play games.
Overall I think you are doing a good choice, if you buy a laptop with bigger CPU , you will have either to increase your budget, or to sacrifice some other resource, HDD size, RAM or video adapter, and you will need to pay more money later on, when you notice RAM is not enough or HDD is full.

New ASUS G50vm-x1 from Best Buy

Unfortunatley laptops have everything "built in onboard" which is to say to fix it you need to replace it. Take it back and try another one. The other option is to disable the wireless adaptor and get a usb wireless adapter to take it's place.
